Dual Display Digital LCD Thermometer [Monitor Kegerator & Ferm Temps] – $14.99

DROK -20 to +100℃ Digital Thermometer, DC 4-28V Indoor Outdoor Thermometer with Dual LED Display, High Accuracy Digital Temperature Gauge Tester with 2 Waterproof NTC Temperature Sensor ProbeDROK -20 to +100℃ Digital Thermometer, DC 4-28V Indoor Outdoor Thermometer with Dual LED Display, High Accuracy Digital Temperature Gauge Tester with 2 Waterproof NTC Temperature Sensor Probe

Possible uses include monitoring kegerator temperatures, beer fridge temperatures and fermentation chamber/area temperatures.  Since it displays two temps you could monitor both your kegerator AND fermentation chamber.

Note that this thermometer does not use batteries and needs to be wired to an appropriate power supply.  Something that provides DC 4-28V.  The probes are waterproof, but I’m seeing where they are food safe.  It appears this displays in deg C only.

Also Consider: Taylor 9940

More about the T742HP

from MoreBeer…

When it comes to CO2 regulators, we’ve tried them all. This quality unit by Taprite is our favorite on the market. It’s no wonder this regulator is trusted by so many breweries and beer bars—it represents the best quality at a great price. Available in a standard, single-body model, as well as a dual-body model which allows you to send different pressures to two separate kegs from the same CO2 tank!
The things you’ll love about this regulator are:
  • The large front knob makes pressure adjustment tool-free, easy & fast.
  • The built-in gasket where the regulator connects to the CO2 tank eliminates the constant replacement of fiber washers every time you change out your tank.
  • The barbed outlet features a one-way on/off valve which prevents backflow and protects the regulator’s internals.
  • The gauges are easy to read. The low pressure gauge reads from 0 to 60 psi. The optional available gauge cage is the best on the market.
  • This is the T742HP model, where the HP stands for high performance; it won’t freeze up when multiple taps are running at once.
  • Best of all is the consistent pressure regulation. With many regulators the pressure can ‘creep’ up over time. This unit holds the pressure rock steady. No drifting.

More Tips & Tricks:

1. Are you out of CO2? When the needle reads half way in the red you are about 10% full. You should be able to push another 2-3gallons of beer when your at this amount of remaining gas.
2. What is an ideal serving pressure? For most beers a pressure set at 10-12PSI is the sweet spot. Your beer has to be stored cold from 34-40F for this pressure to work properly.
3. Is your beer serving a lot of foam? Don’t panic this is not hard to fix. Your beer line must be 5-8 feet in length for this to work. Turn the black check valve to the close position (as pictured). Release the pressure from your keg’s relief valve. Lower the pressure to 6-8psi by turning the flat head screw on the front of the regulator counter clock wise. Open the black check valve releasing CO2 to your keg. Try serving your beer.
4. Is my beer over carbonated? Any beer that is stored under pressure above 12psi will become overcarbonated. If you’re trying to speed up the process to carbonate your beer by raising your pressure anywhere from 15-20psi make sure you don’t leave your beer at this pressure for more than 2-3 days. If you did this you will need to release all the pressure from the keg before serving and set your serving pressure at 4-6psi depending the carbonation of your beer. After a week you will have to raise your pressure back to the optimum 10-12psi serving pressure.

Eva Dry-E333 Dehumidifier.  The Eva Dry E-333 contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.

I use the larger E-500 in my kegerator.  Check out my extensive Hands on Review of the E-500 including condensation trials.

Eva Dry 500 [Kegerator & Fermentation Condensation] + Hands on Review

81by-5e3kxl-_sl1500_

Like many of you, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva Dry contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  Mine usually lasts a couple months before needing to be regenerated.

I’ve also started using on of these to handle condensation in my fermentation deep freeze.
